Hi there chicken people! I'm Ron, been browsing this site and forum for a while now and thought it was high time I stopped lurking and introduced myself. I live in central California, east of Fresno on about 40+ acres. The kids and I have been kicking around the idea of building a coop for a while now. So, after doing some homework (and I have tons more to learn), we've just about settled on a coop and run design and hope to start building in a couple weeks. Still haven't decided on what breed(s) we want, but know we're going to stick with layers only for a while. Talk to you guys later.
